Quoted from Who-Dey:

I have no doubts that your situation is bad and it's not right that you cant get disability either if you are truly disabled. I have issues myself that I dont want to go into and I honestly think that I would be a good candidate for disability but like you they would probably turn me down so I just keep going to work and grinding it out.
I dont have any answers for your problems and I feel bad for you that you are in the position that you are in, I sincerely mean that. How do you actually make enough money for your medicine and other Bill's? You live in a nice home on a nice area looks like and you also have some pinball machines. I do envy you for that!
I had a friend who was like 26 years old and had stage 4 rheumatoid arthritis and he was in so much pain that he couldn't stand it and he definitely couldn't work and he really did want to work. He tried and tried to get disability and they kept turning him down. Unfortunately he couldn't take the pain anymore and he had no money because he couldn't get his disability that he so much deserved and decided to leave this world. That was under the previous administration by the way.
It was really sad and I think he kinda looked up to me and he always wanted my advice on things but when he would tell me how much pain he was in I felt terrible because I had no answers for him other than to hang in there and maybe there will be some new meds that could help him or something. It literally broke my heart when his gf texted me and told me that he had passed.

That is very sad,The government always denies you when you first apply and it can take up 6 to 8 months before you even hear anything about your case.Once you’ve been denied you’ll need a disability attorney to fight for you to get the benefits you need and also you would need a good write up from your doctor.Then once approved the government will pay you in one lump sum for all those months that went by while you were waiting for approval.

Hopefully America wakes the Fuck up
Everything we need is made outside of the US ? Fuck China !

Quoted from Honch:

Most people dont make 75k a year.

This isn’t going resonate very well, but here I go. My base is 42k, I make almost the same amount with commission. This week my orders reduced by 90%. I will not be eligible, but my income will be reduced ny 50%.

Take it easy yes we need to stop depending on China for majority of our needs but you can thank the greedy big corporations for that looking for cheap labor to maximize their profits for the big wigs who have more money than they can ever spend in their lifetime.

The guy in charge was working very hard to change this, until this event and another several months ago threw a wrench in the gears and slowed the progress of that down, and now to a halt.

Quoted from Djshakes:

I would shut the thread down. It's been a political dumpster fire for a while. I'm guilty as well.

You might be right but hey we all are stuck at home.Change title to Come in and Vent!!

Quoted from Tranquilize:

Says one of the the trolls baiting with divisive political rants. You and Wolf can beat it, and the thread would be just fine.

He did say he was guilty as well.

Quoted from mcluvin:

Dude, pollen is all over everything here. I'm constantly trying to decide if it's just allergies or something else. I'm pretty sure it's just allergies, but.....

It’s from those damn chem-trails? I remember when I was a kid we all used to look up in the clear sunny sky and wonder how a plane can fly that high and those trails would remain there all freaking day.

Well, you can’t fear what you can’t spell.

I was commission only when I was in outside sales. If that was my case now - I would have $0 coming in. I’m sorry brother.

I’m now unemployed entirely due to COVID.
